If we can't get a top quick CB in summer I'd ditch Ole. Playing a high line and a high press against Chelsea gave me hope that that might be our future playing style, with the right personnel. But if we don't get that top CB or maybe a top pacy CDM, it's going to be the same shite next season and I can't be arsed.
What I don't understand is that we have Tuanzebe and Mengi. There's no point in hyping them up if Ole doesn't have the balls to play them regularly as we'll never know if they are good enough for the step up. If we buy a pacy top CB, the chances are that we will lose the home grown prospects due to game time. Then you have to ask the question of whether it's worth bothering with the Academy if no cunt can get promoted to the first team.
Well we’re probably not going to spend much this summer, maybe a player or two at most. And if we’re not going to improve much with new players, then if we are going to make any progress at all, we’ll have to improve through coaching. And unfortunately for Ole, I really don’t think he can credibly claim to be doing very well in that respect. He’s made some mistakes in the transfer market, but the squad overall has strengthened under him. And he has definitely improved the atmosphere and team spirit. I think there’d be a stronger case for sticking with him if we were spending big, with the prospect of significantly improving three key positions. But since that isn’t going to happen, if next season isn’t going to be more of the exact same, surely we need the kind of coaching that really improves the players you already have.
I appreciate that this season has the games coming thick and fast, with not a lot of time for training. But it’s so fucking frustrating watching us set up with the very same exact 4-2-3-1 every single fucking match, with the exact same players except for a couple of variations: Pogba/McT, sometimes Cavani gets a go, and that ‘s about it unless Ole is forced by injuries. If we were steamrolling everyone like City, great. But since going top of the league, we’ve won 3 of the next 10 league games. Fucking change something! Rotate the players at least! We might as well sell half the squad, Ole never ever uses them.
